“Unadkat is the definition of hard work and persistence” – Twitter reacts after Jaydev Unadkat takes his maiden Test wicket after his Test debut in 2010

India’s fast bowler Jaydev Unadkat couldn’t be any happier upon seeing his name in the squad for the Test series against Bangladesh. Earlier, Jaydev Unadkat steered the Saurashtra cricket team to Ranji Trophy glory.

Saurashtra cricket team got the better of the Maharashtra cricket team in the Ranji Trophy final and days later, Unadkat was rewarded with a call-up to the national cricket team for the two-match Test series.

The southpaw earned a call-up to the Test team after his Test debut in 2010 and since then, he fell out of favour with the selectors owing to stiff competition in the Indian cricket team.

Unadkat didn’t play the Test opener against the Bangladesh cricket team in Chattogram due to a delay in his visa arrival. Upon getting the issue solved, he made a terrific comeback to Test cricket in the second Test in Dhaka.

The first Test match went in favour of the visitors as they scripted an emphatic 188-run win over the Tigers in Chattogram and rightly so, they took the first lead in the two-match Test series.

Besides that, they also moved to second place in the WTC points table after South Africa lost their Test opener against Australia at The Gabba in Brisbane that was held recently.

Talking about the second Test between Bangladesh and India, Jaydev Unadkat bagged his maiden Test wicket since his Test debut in 2010. The southpaw got rid of Zakir Hasan (15) to take his first wicket.

Besides that, he also went on to get rid of the prized wicket of Mushfiqur Rahim for 26 runs to take two wickets. Batting first, the Bangladesh cricket team have posted 184 for the loss of five wickets in 57 overs at the stroke of Tea. Mominul Haque and Mehidy Hasan Miraz are batting on 65 and 4 respectively.
